In order to better monitor health workforce changes, some states have implemented processes by which health care professionals, including ARNPs, complete workforce surveys at licensing and/or with license renewal. When data from workforce surveys are linked to licensure data, and if surveys are conducted online, data collection costs can be greatly reduced and response rates are typically higher than for separate mailed or phone-based surveys. In 2018, Washington’s Nursing Care Quality Assurance Commission (NCQAC) required that all nurses licensed in the state must provide workforce data at initial licensure and renewal through the Nursys e-Notify survey conducted by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN). With funding from the Washington Center for Nursing, the UW CHWS conducted analyses of these data following the first full year of mandated data collection for ARNPs, as well as for licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered nurses (RNs). This report describes the results of these analyses for Washington’s ARNPs.
